2. Apply your MAGIC FOUNDATION with Charlotte’s MAGIC COMPLEXION BRUSH, blending outwards from the centre of your face for weightless coverage.

Charlotte’s Tip: Perfect your gorgeous glowing complexion with the WONDERGLOW Face Primer before your foundation.


Mushroom Extract: A concentrated mushroom extract that firms skin. It instantly tightens pores whilst flooding the skin with moisture, for a comfortable, nourished yet flawless finish.

Genius Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: What makes Hyaluronic Acid so beneficial is its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. These “genius” spheres absorb into the skin and plump up wrinkles from within. In 1 hour skin looks smoother and firmer, plus more supple and youthful.

Super-Charged Vitamin C (VC-IP): Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that fights the damaging and ageing effects of free radicals. My Magic Foundation is the first time this new super-charged Vitamin C has been used in a foundation. With consistent use, it helps skin build new collagen (essential for youthful elasticity), reduces the appearance of age spots by 75% in four months, and reduces the appearance of acne after 9 weeks.

Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Protects from damaging rays so skin can retain a healthy, youthful look.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation - Foundation - Shade 3 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple item I could not do without my magic foundation. I have very acne prone, oily but also dry skin. It's a nightmare and I've really struggled finding the right foundation- until this one! I've been using the magic foundation for years and my skin has not had any problems with it. And it lasts all day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I have to say that the magic foundation isn't as great on my skin as others have said it is on theirs. At 51 my skin has dry patches around my nose with a little redness on the tip and I usually wear a tinted moisturiser because it's the only thing that does't show it up too much but foundations do and this is no exception. It highlights my pores around my nose too. But all foundations do and I haven't yet found a perfect one. My skin isn't that bad but I still want to look perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Had a free product sample in shade 2 which I liked for coverage but just not quite the right shade. Thought I'd risk purchasing shade 3 and I'm so glad I did. I've never bought a foundation that covered my complexion as well as this. It's very economical to use, there's no sign of tiny spider veins and it blends all minor imperfections out of sight. Brilliant - I'm really impressed and will definitely purchase again and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Heard lots of good things about this foundation, I have combination to oily skin and want lots of coverage without the cakey feeling and this foundation does not disappoint. Aslong as I set the foundation with a powder, it lasts all day and gives me great coverage. Only slightly negative thing about this foundation is the price, but to me is definitely worth the money, and not as expensive as many other high end foundations out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for coverage! I bought this foundation a few months ago after having lots of problems trying to find a foundation which covered my lupus rash on my face. From research I found that Charlotte developed this foundation for people with rosacea so I thought I'd give it a try. It is fantastic! Covers my lupus butterfly rash up perfectly without clumping or making the rash more noticeable! I would definitely recommend this foundation to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION After trying several new foundations out a friend recommended Charlotte Tilbury to me. As I don't live close to any stockists in order to get my colour matched I did it all online. The photos of different skin tones helped me choose the perfect match for me! The foundation is amazing and lasts all day! I'm so pleased I just went for it! I shall now be recommending to everyone too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish, soft, and natural looking I rcvd a sample of Magic Fdtn, 3, in my order: I never thought I could wear a fdtn on 'mature' skin which is not dewey, but I can with this one. Applies evenly, is not heavy, and looks as if you have on no fdtn. Finish is smooth, soft, natural looking, and did not settle in pores! Have found a new fdtn! Plan on buying the fdtn primer too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely texture and finish I bought this as I needed a new full coverage foundation. I was hoping this would be full coverage from the first application, however it seems to need some building to be completely full coverage. Love the texture and matte finish, and it also works really well in combination with a translucent powder without going cakey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION This is the best foundation I've ever used. After years of trying to get the perfect finish, application and staying power - I have finally found it. Also I seriously have never had so many people comment on how flawless my skin looks! This has been the best beauty purchase I have ever made! Dramatic but true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coverage I have only been using this foundation for a short period of time but this is the best product I have used to date. The colour matches very well (especially with the tester packets received in previous orders) and the coverage that you get is amazing. It doesn't even feel like I am wearing any product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! Tried a sample of this and was blown away. I have a drawerful of foundations but this might be the one. Looks so natural with decent coverage. My skin is mid 40s, uneven texture due to acne scarring, and this really blurs and smooths and distracts from that. So glad I found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great full coverage foundation I bought this foundation as a evening foundation when I want more coverage and it to last! I am very impressed and will be purchasing again, it is brilliant as a foundation on its own however I also have the airbrush powder which gives that truest flawless finish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION When first using this foundation I wasn't very impressed and didn't understand the hype. But after finishing applying my makeup and it settling down I really liked it. Less is more I feel when using it but it definitely needs a settling down period! Now love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I probably bought a shade lighter than I would ideally have but difficult to judge colours on a screen rather than in real life. I would have liked to buy a small sample size first. Product very good gives good coverage without being too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A full yet light coverage I’ve been forever searching for the perfect foUndation! And fianlly, just like magic, it’s appeared! I’m so happy with the full coverage I like yet it’s very light feeling on my skin and gives my face a perfect Instagram worthy finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Love it....I have very pale skin and reluctant to use foundation as I never seem to get a natural look. First time using this foundation I received compliments on my make up.. It was so easy to use and blended well with my skin tones.
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION The magic foundation is great. Definitely lives up to the hype. I have large pores and I think it hides them pretty well without making my skin look to cakey. Its not too heavy either and my other make up sits better on top of it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY SHINY Doesn’t give very good coverage at all intact causes blemishes to appear darker. I have fairly dry skin and this made my skin so shiny and look greasy! Definitely not worth the money il be going back to my Nars foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Have only used 3 times. 1st use I didn't like it but the next time I used more product and got a better finish. Not as long-lasting as I would hope but not bad,hoping primer helps. Good colour match, using the online tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect second bootle that I bought. I have plenty of foundation, but this one is my favorite. It stays all day, does not flake,does not become crazy (orange, dried or anything else that I dont like). must have

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Sadly, my sample was good, but after using the product for a few days, my skin looks like a shiney, cakey mess, and it definitely oxidises on the skin. I'd hoped to love it, but alas, it's a no from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic foundation I bought this foundation alongside the face powder to travel China. My foundation gives great coverage with out feeling thick or that it's going to slide off my face in this heat! It is magic.
Date published: 2017-08-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Coverage is ok but not as good as the double wear I was using before (and i have been using it with the magic brush too). Leaves skin a little shiny so need to use a good matte powder on top.
Date published: 2016-04-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION A nice foundation but not as good as the promises would suggest. Maybe I need the foundation brush rather than using my fingers to get a better finish. Needs reapplying to last the day.
Date published: 2017-04-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Thought it would have given the same coverage as double wear which it didn't. Maybe I need a darker one. It also didn't last all day but not sure if that's due to the really hot weather.
Date published: 2016-06-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I really like this foundation. It applies easily and a little gives good coverage without being too thick. There are several shades so getting one to match my skin tone was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Absolutely love it . Was used by my make up artist for my wedding and bought my own straight after . Amazing stuff. Best foundation I've ever used . Bought the lipstick too !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION love the foundation, love the brand/ company, just foundtion is quite dark , so next purchace will get lighter shade, gutted tho on spending that much, wish i got a tester first

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Been using for a while now live the way it sits on the skin and stays. The only down side for me it doesn't last as long as other foundations doesn't seem to be much in bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I love this foundation for a night out. I use Light Wonder through the day but when I want some extra coverage, this is perfect. Excellent coverage without feeling heavy.
